Work-Based Learning

Work-based learning (WBL) describes any formalized learning consisting of instruction that occurs concurrently at a school and a worksite.  Here at Focus Beyond we offer a wide spectrum of work-based Learning opportunities including:  

  • 20 + Community Based Worksites  
  • Coaching and support for independent workers  
  • Job Coaches that work with students as they work towards their individual employment goals.  
  • And More!  

Some students who participate in the Work Based Learning program will meet with their Job Coach at school and use public transit to travel to their community-based worksite.  Students travel back to school or depart directly for home or other educational opportunities depending on their goals.  Check out this video to hear from Focus Beyond students about one of our worksites -


Some of our Community Partners Include:  

  • Urban Boat Builders 
  • Cookie Cart 
  • St. Paul College 
  • Brake Bread 
  • Walgreens 
  • MN Tool Library  
  • St. Paul Public Schools Nutritional Services  

Regardless of your goals there is a work-based Learning opportunity for you!
